Description of Highlights of Lebanon holiday

See what’s beyond Beirut. Take a week to get to know the real Lebanon with a guided tour of some of its most important sights. Not only will you gain a fascinating insight into this diminutive Middle Eastern nation, but you’ll also eat wonderfully well.

Lebanon has a gastronomic reputation that belies its size, and a chequered history. You’ll learn about the civil war as you tour Beirut, the capital, then see ruins that place the country in the context of the Roman empire, and castles that will transport you back to the days of the Crusades. Travelling from site to site by bus, with a group of no more than 16, you’ll explore most of the sites on foot.

Starting in Beirut, you’ll travel along the coast to Sidon's Phoenician sea castle before driving inland to see Roman ruins at Baalbek, visit villages on the slopes of Mount Lebanon, and sample red wine from the fertile Bekaa Valley. The famous Lebanon Cedars are a highlight of the trip. These 1,000-year-old trees sit high above the Qadisha Valley – it’s no wonder they’re called the ‘Cedars of God’.

Responsible tourism

Highlights of Lebanon holiday

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

Lebanon is a small Middle Eastern country with a variety of different landscapes and terrains, and we are very keen to conserve this beautiful country.
While we travel between cities by bus, we do the majority of our sightseeing on foot. Spending time exploring ruins from the Phoenician, Roman and Byzantine eras and then strolling through the narrow lanes of the souqs.
All of our leaders have been trained on how to promote responsible tourism, particularly focusing on reducing the use of single-use plastic. On this trip the leader will advise you where to refill water bottles with clean, safe drink water, therefore reducing the necessity to buy plastic water bottles throughout your trip.
As a travel company we are continually looking for ways to improve and are proud to be ‘Responsible in everything we do’. Education is key, and so all staff, Tour Leaders and partnering suppliers are trained in responsible and sustainable tourism. At our Head Office, we continually strive towards a sustainable and planet-friendly working environment, including having solar panels installed and a company commitment to reducing our plastic usage.

Community

Travelling in Lebanon means you are rarely far from a coffee seller or a stall selling fresh fruit. We regularly stop and make the most of the chance to chat to the sellers whilst we enjoy some strong, sweet, black coffee.
During this itinerary we spend one night in a simple hotel in the grounds of St Anthony's Monastery. The money from our stay contributes to the maintenance of this beautiful building dating back to the 4th century, set in the fertile Qadisha Valley.
As a company we have valuable and longstanding partnerships with UK charities Toilet Twinning and Send a Cow, plus many smaller initiatives and projects around the world. We’re members of the UK travel industry body AITO because we believe it’s important to share our knowledge and experience, as well as learn from other operators.
